5 prospects falling into the Denver Broncos laps on Day 2
Denver Broncos prospect no. 3: Andrew Booth Jr., CB, Clemson
There are not many cornerbacks at this range that would really excite me and probably a lot of other fans in Broncos Country.
However, if the Broncos were able to somehow find a way to pair up Pat Surtain II with Andrew Booth Jr. for the future at the position?
That would be unbelievable.
Booth is considered by many to be the best overall player left on the board and arguably a top 25 player in this class in general.
He’s got an aggressive mentality at the catch point and led Clemson with three interceptions this past season.
He didn’t work out in the pre-draft process due to injury but he’s got above average size and length for the cornerback position, tremendous ball skills, and natural athleticism that shows up consistently on the tape.
I think Booth would have a really good chance to thrive in Ejiro Evero’s defense and this is a player that the Broncos might consider moving some assets to go up and get. If they were able to land Booth, it would be like having a first-round pick, ultimately.
The Broncos play in one of the toughest divisions in the NFL in terms of QB play and a player like Booth could help them create more turnovers and cause havoc for those star QBs.
